    with my first son he didn't engage, and I was induced at 41 weeks. It was a long induction as he was REALLY not ready to come! Stubborn kid :p

    I'm not sure it makes a real difference hon. I was told if the head was engaged, you're less likely to go over but at the same time, it can engage during labour too. I was told 2 weeks ago I was unlikely to go over as the head was engaged and look at me now! :dohh: Try not to take too much heed of it, easier said than done I know :hugs:

    Awww how frustrating! you tried a gym/birthing ball? they are good for getting baby to engage if you sit on it correctly, worth a go hun that could be all that holding you up xxx

    Yep, I was told over 2 weeks ago that I was going to have this one early too, and I'm due today. Blooming Midwives all need shooting!! They should keep their traps shut.

    Definitely! I was quite prepared to go over until the consultant told me I probably wouldn't and of course now I'm frustrated and impatient! :grr:

    My baby isn't engaged either! She was starting to at about 34 weeks and I was really positive and then had a random check up at 37 weeks and she'd disengaged! I am in the same boat!

    I saw the midwife yesterday and my little man had started to engage a few weeks back - still no further along .. he is on his way though (his head was still loose in my pubic bone). My widwife said not to worry, some babies can engage early and sit there for a while, others can engage all of a sudden and labour can start. Fingers crossed it's not too much longer for you hun xx

    I'm 38+3 and my baby's head is still free. Midwife says it means nothing though. I was on a monitor yesterday that was showing I was having contractions, but I couldn't feel anything!

    My friend has just given birth - she was not engaged on the Tuesday, had baby on the Thursday night! Another friend has been engaged for weeks and is nearly a week overdue so far.

    my mum went in labour with my sister and she wasnt engaged at all, she became engaged when they broke her waters,
    on my second lil girl, she wasnt engaged when i went into labour and she turned out to be a brow presenting baby, they broke my waters to move her but she wouldnt budge, already knew she wouldnt so ended up with an emergancy section,
    babies can become engaged right up until the minute they wanna get out x
